Smoky Roasted Garlic Hummus

One summer in high school, I pretty much lived on pita, hummus, and carrot sticks. I had just discovered hummus and could not get enough of it. It was just so good, and thus I ate it for lunch every day. Since then, I've cut back on my hummus eating. I still think it's a… Continue reading Smoky Roasted Garlic Hummus

Whole-Wheat Sunflower Seed Rolls

When I was younger, I wanted nothing more than to have Wonder bread (or at least paper-white, sweet, practically crust-less bread) on which to make my PB&J sandwiches. Sorry, Dad.

Simit {Turkish Sesame Bagels}

These ring-shaped Turkish breads are a little nutty, a little chewy, and just slightly sweet! Well, Reader, this past week we got our first real snowfall of the season. It stuck to the ground, it piled, it drifted, it didn't get above 15 degrees for a couple days. It was enough that I decided to… Continue reading Simit {Turkish Sesame Bagels}
